Ezra is the founder and former publisher of the Western Standard, hosts The Source daily on Sun News Network, and has written several books on politics.  He is probably best known for the 3-year battle with the Canadian Human Rights Commission over his magazine's publishing of the controversial "Muhammad cartoons" back in 2006.  His latest book, The Enemy Within, is out now and deals with the story of a Canadian jihadist who killed a US Army sergeant on the battlefield in Afghanistan.

bio-horstR.J. chats with Mr. Levant about the state of conservatism north of the border, a Canadian's view of the United States' current economics woes, and what makes Mark Steyn so prolific!

In the second segment, R.J. welcomes MereOrthodoxy.com founder Matthew Anderson to the show for a in-depth discussion (alongside AEI's Eric Teetsel) on Matt's recent column for Relevant Magazine "Why I'm a Christian Republican."  Intriguing title, no?

What is “Mere Conservatism”?

The basic ideas, ideals, and values that generally define and characterize the central tenets of what today might be termed "modern conservative thought."

We believe that a proper understanding of history, economics, and theology leads to certain conclusions. Many of these are the same conclusions our Founding Fathers arrived at in constructing a "more perfect union."

All ideas and opinions are welcome; not all are correct.
